    Excellent wind proof coat with soft fleece lining keeping me warm out walking. Just went out in it to try it out in a cold wind and it was excellent at keeping me warm. I bought at a sale price so was extremely pleased at the value for money.

              I returned it because it was just too much of a good thing and I felt swamped. The Velcro fastenings felt inadequate for such a bulky coat and I think studs would have been better.

              Comments about Women's Squall Insulated Parka:

              I bought this as a replacement for my Thinsulate coat I've had for 4+ years (it's now relegated to just wearing on the farm) and needed it to be long and warm, but also practical for walking the dog.

              This fitted the bill - almost.
              Not quite long enough, but it would've been just OK. I hate velcro as a closure as well as a zip, much prefer poppers or just the zip. So that was a no-no. But also the hood and neck area are really bulky. Maybe it would have softened down with wear, but it was going to irritate.

              Also, it was really heavy as a coat. I suppose because I have had the Thinsulate one for ages, it is light but also very warm. (I wear that with a LE fleece and its perfect.) So, although this is probably great, its just not for me.

              So, back it went - waiting for LE to reinstroduce another Thinsulate coat which would work for me.

                Daughter loves it but has had to return it and get larger size than Medium as is little tight across the shoulders. This is surprising as she has large hips, and if anything thought the problem would arise lower not higher. Would have loved it if the coat had had some reflective motifs or edging on it for wearing in the dark as it is black. I am going to sew on some reflective fabric to make her visible at bus stops! Bought high vis reflective jacket from 99p shop, cut tape off and am am recycling as cheapest way of getting the tape!

                      Product packed in plastic bag and was very badly creased. this made the coat look and feel extremely unattractive and cheap.
                      Will be returning.

                      The main problem is that it doesn't fasten at the neck unless you have the hood up.also not quite long enough to sit down on a wet bench and keep dry because it is quite bulky.

                          As regards sizing, would this coat be on the more generous side or is it true to size? Am typically 12/14 size, but wondering if the 10/12 would suit. Thanks.

                            The sizing of the squall insulated parka is quite generous. The US size small (UK 10-12), has a garment chest measurement of approximately 45 inches, suitable for a body chest measurement of 35-36 inches. The US size Medium (UK 14/16) has a garment chest measurement of approximately 47 1/2 inches, suitable for a body chest measurement of between 37-38 1/2 inches.
